Step 1 – Cook the tortellini as instructed on the package. Mine recommends boiling for 3 minutes. Drain off the excess water with a sieve. Pour into a big bowl and add salt, olive oil and Parmesan cheese. Give the content of the bowl a gentle mix so as to combine properly but not to cause any damages to the tortellini’s

Step 2 – Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) while cooking the tortellini .

Step 3 – Air Fry: Arrange the tortellini in a single layer in the air fryer basket. You may need to cook in batches to avoid overcrowding. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Cook for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through, until golden and crispy.

Serve: Remove the tortellini from the air fryer and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. Serve hot with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.
